Photoshop CS6: Batch Processing Copyright Metadata for Multiple Images and Photos
s In this tutorial I will be showing you how to use Photoshop CS6’s batch processing and actions to add copyright metadata to all the images in a folder. We will set up the process first then after that we will be able to in one batch command add our copyright metadata to the entire folder without having to edit each image individually. It is important that we add our copyright details to our images to protect our intellectual property rights. However adding them individually can be very tedious. This process will save us a lot of time down the track.
For this exercise I will be using Photoshop CS6 but most versions have this capability and are all pretty simple if not exactly the same.
This process has been tested and works also on Adobe Photoshop CS4, CS5, CS5.5 as well as CS6. The process remains unchanged across all these versions of Photoshop.

In this tutorial we will show you how to set up Joomla(2.5 or 3.0 and up) in Dreamweaver CS6 so that you may edit the CSS of your layout while still making good use of Dreamweaver’s great productivity tools. One warning before we proceed though, Whilst working with Joomla in Dreamweaver CS6 do not edit any of the core Joomla files. This goes for all of Joomla’s PHP and CSS files. Only work with the CSS files directly assosciated with the template you are working on. If it isn’t a CSS file you should probably not be using Dreamweaver for this task. If you touch anything else the risks of you breaking something are significant.
In this tutorial we will show you the basics of the @font-face CSS3 property and how to use it.

I will show you how to add multiple transparency gradients to an image in Photoshop CS6. This is more of just a quick simple tip than an actual tutorial and the process should be the same or very similar in other versions of Photoshop. Although we are not actually applying multiple gradient masks we are able to add multiple gradients. Often one gradient in one direction doesn’t acheive the effect we are looking for.
I know I myself tried searching for this recently for a project I was undertaking but couldn’t find much to help out so after much research here is the best way to go about doing it. Continue reading
This is a rather unusual question I’ve been asked. Can the crop tool in Photoshop CS6 crop a circle? Yes and No. Fact is Photoshop CS6 or any other version of Photoshop cannot crop a circle with the crop tool. It can however be done in any version of Photoshop via other methods. The same can be applied to other Adobe products such as Fireworks and Illustrator.
Photoshop CS6 batch processing multiple images ready for the web
In this tutorial we will be showing you how to use batch processing to re-size an entire folder full of images you want to prepare for deployment on your web page. Rather than editing each photo individually, with one simple action we will change them all to 72ppi and re-size them all to suit your website. We all know we don’t want great big picture consuming a few meg of bandwidth each being re-sized by the browser. This is very bandwidth heavy so normally we would use Photoshop or Fireworks to re-size them etc. but when you are processing dozens or even hundreds at a time this can be quite tedious. This is where batch processing comes in. For this exercise I will be using Photoshop CS6 but most versions have this capability and are all pretty simple if not exactly the same.
This process has been testing and works also on Adobe Photoshop CS4, CS5, CS5.5 as well as CS6. The process remains unchanged across all these versions of Photoshop.
